Pantone Projects (no. 3)

Man, it has been a busy couple of months! Luckily, things are starting to slow down. (I hope.) I’ve been busy keeping up with crochet orders, friends, family, and my “real” job, but I’m finally able to get back to refashioning. And I’ve missed it!

I’m in the midst of a few other projects, but I thought I’d pick something new (and easy) to get back into the swing of things. My friend gifted me this shirt earlier this month, and it fits the bill.

beforeLet’s get started!

 First, I removed the pockets.

 Then, I undid the side seams.

 Next step, off with the sleeves.

Which left me with a long rectangle of fabric with a hole for my head.

Then I pressed, pinned, and sewed the long edges.

Once the long sides are finished, I folded the shirt in half “hamburger style,” as they said at my elementary school.

Then I sewed a straight line from the bottom to about 8 inches from the top, roughly 4 inches from each side. (Along the dashed line in the diagram above.)

And that was it! See? I told you it was easy.
